Well, the second Weasley Sweater is finished. FINALLY!
Seems like forever, though it's just been since the beginning of November. It's actually a fairly simple design, but takes lots and lots of stocking stitch. Spent over 16 hours yesterday knitting the last sleeve, and five hours today to do the initial on the front in duplicate stitch. It's a little inconsistent, but I guess that adds to the homey look.
I learned a lot with this project, and two things especially during the process of doing the duplicate stitch. Last time I did one of these sweaters, I did the initial with intarsia, but I wasn't satisfied with the appearance, so I tried the duplicate stitch this time. Watched a couple of videos and gave it a try. I did learn to do duplicate stitch, but I also discovered that that my knit stitches are apparently upside down. The "V" points downward instead of upward. I knit this with circular needles from the bottom up. Any ideas on that are welcome.
